Impatience

Tomato, tomato, tomato
Tomato, tomato, tomato
Peach!
Peach!

Is it ripe yet?

Is it ripe yet?

Okay, just kidding about the squash blossom. But it will be ripe. Right?

And I’m not kidding about being impatient. The peaches look great, but they’re still hard, and they still don’t smell like peaches. When? When, oh when can I pick one?

  1. The peach will let you know. All things have their moment.

    Actually, they can sense your impatience, and remain green just to tease you.

    Hey, there might be a story there: The fruit know it is their destiny to ripen. They all dream of making it to the ground and becoming a tree, and ripeness is the path. However, ripeness also carries the danger of being eaten and discarded. Rumor has it that those whole achieve perfect ripeness are sometimes planted despite being eaten.

    Then again, this story is starting to sound like some Christian allegory. Back to the malevolent, teasing fruit.
